Common Questions About Dental Implants

What are dental implants?

They are metal posts made of titanium, that, through surgery are placed into the jawbone.  Once the surgical fixtures are in place, your dentist can mount replacement teeth on top.

How do dental implants work?

Basically, implants are fused to your jawbone, providing support for the artificial teeth. For a more thorough explanation, call Three Rivers Dental at 1-(855)-466-3327 for your consultation.

How do I know if I’m a good candidate for dental implant surgery?

The dentist will examine you and make a clinical assessment based on affordability, the location of your missing tooth or teeth, both quality and quantity of your jawbone, and your overall physical health.

Does the procedure hurt?

Typically performed under local anesthesia to numb the area, you should feel no pain during the operation. Following the procedure, over the counter pain meds typically do the trick.  If you have concerns, sedation dentistry is an option for consideration.
